Extending the Particle Model of Matter
In this session, participants extend their understanding of the particle model to explain additional macroscopic phenomena, including the electrical properties of matter. Participants review the progression of ideas covered in the course and anticipate future developments in the understanding of matter.
Dividing Positive & Negative Numbers (Integers)
In this video learn how easy it can be to divide positive and negative numbers. The two rules for dividing positive or negative integers are discussed and step by step instructions on how to solve problems. Run time 03:23.
Montessori 6-9 Multiplication
This is a demonstration of simple multiplication using the Montessori Checkerboard material. It is part of a new DVD soon to be released by Educational Video Publishing.
The Arts in Every Classroom: What is Art?
The Learner Teams and students explore the nature of theatre, music, dance, and visual art as they consider their own definitions for each art form. They watch an excerpt from Quidam, a surrealistic performance piece that combines the four art forms in unusual ways, and begin to explore connections between fantasy and reality.
The Arts in Every Classroom: Creating a Multi-Arts Performance Piece
Learner Team members and students examine the elements of the classic journey as identified by Joseph Campbell. They then create a multi-arts performance piece that represents a journey story. They apply what they have learned in previous lessons in order to rehearse, critique, revise, and perform their work.
Introduction to the Line Integral
Introduction to the Line Integral. The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. The screen is dark with small writing, so the viewer may want to open the screen to 'full screen'. The instructor is clear and easy to understand.
Connecting With the Arts: Identifying What Students Are Learning
This program investigates ways to evaluate student learning in and through the arts. Participants will see teachers using arts-based performance tasks to assess student understanding.
Connecting With the Arts: Reflecting On Our Practice
This program explores methods for assessing instructional practice. Participants will see teachers reflecting alone and interacting with colleagues to evaluate and refine their planning and teaching. To conclude, the discussion group models a protocol that allows teachers to draw on the expertise of colleagues to refine their practice.
The Art of Teaching the Arts: Making the Most of Community Resources
Arts teachers develop relationships with community members and organizations by bringing artists into the classroom, taking students beyond school walls, and asking students to draw inspiration from the voices of their community. In this session, participants see a guest choreographer who challenges the students with her working style and expectations. A visiting theatre artist helps playwriting students
develop monologues based on interviews with people in the neighborhood. A visual art t
Reading the Code of Life DNA is central to cell activity, replicating with great fidelity and carrying the information for all proteins. Organisms also regulate the products made from genes in an effort to conserve energy and adapt to new environments.
DNA is central to cell activity, replicating with great fidelity and carrying the information for all proteins. Organisms also regulate the products made from genes in an effort to conserve energy and adapt to new environments.
Recent genetic techniques have led to new theories of evolution and the relationships between organisms. Students examine this "evolution revolution," using molecular sequences to trace the phylogenetic relationships of microbial life. Both the big picture of microbial evolution and the methods necessary for determining molecular phylogenies are examined.
Workshop 6: Algebra and Calculus: The Challenge
With Professor James Kaput. Professor Kaput of the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, studies children’s understanding of algebra and calculus. Historically, these topics have presented students with significant problems, and we tend to see it as a given that children will struggle with them. Kaput finds many ways of embedding algebra and calculus concep
Learn what acceleration is and how it effects the velocity of objects in this short, computer animated video. Key concepts covered are: acceleration, velocity, constant velocity, constand acceleration, distand per second, and constand acceleration rate. Video ends with a 10 question, fill in the blank quiz.
Roller Coaster Design
From DragonflyTV. Tyler and Aditya are roller coaster maniacs! The boys head to the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, to ride a roller coaster simulator. They took a measuring device called an accelerometer to find out which part of the simulation produced the most g-forces. Unfortunately, the simulator didn't produce the actual g's of a roller coaster. So they then took the accelerometers to a real roller coaster at a local amusement park and measured the number of g's on the ac
Acceleration Lab Experiment
In this slow motion video for IPS Schools by Clayborn a ball is released on an inclined plane and accelerates due to the force of gravity. At the bottom of the first inclined plane to the beginning of the second inclined plane the ball stops its positive acceleration by nearly maintaining its horizontal speed. On the second ramp the ball accelerates backwards down the slope, or loses speed to a point where it momentarily comes to rest. Therefore this video demonstrates POSITIVE ACCELERATION, ZER
Conservation of Angular Momentum - Khan Academy
Angular momentum is constant when there is no net torque. This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. Run time (10:12)
Navigating in Space
Getting from here to there. Voyages to other planets require enormous expenditures of energy. However, the amount of energy expended can be minimized by using the same principles that guide planets around the solar system.
The Michelson-Morley Experiment
In 1887, in Cleveland, Ohio, an exquisitely designed measurement of the motion of the earth through the aether resulted in the most brilliant failure in scientific history. Be able to state clearly why the Michelson-Morley experiment should have detected motion relative to the aether according to Newtonian Physics.
